Lincoln Nursing Facility Cited, Fined in Patient’s Death
On Friday, the California Department of Public Health issued a $100,000 fine and a "Class AA" citation -- the most serious citation possible -- against Lincoln Meadows Care Center after an investigation found that the facility overmedicated a stroke patient who later died. Plum Healthcare -- the current owner of Lincoln Meadows -- declined to comment on the citation. Â
